Last night my feet and calves were sort of itchy: bad sign for diabetics (could be circulation and/or neuropathy problems, both of which diabetics are prone to have). I can hear a wake-up call as well as the next guy, so today I walked to the library to pick up a book on hold (Barbara Tuchman’s March of Folly to better understand why certain political leaders think another war, this one with Iran, is a good idea). Normally the walk is 20 min each way, 40 min total. Today, with about a 5-minute rest at the library, it took an hour. So probably good to get out and about daily.

My Fitbit was encouraging. I actually climbed two flights of stairs, but I got credit for 13 because apparently climbing a steep hill is counted as climbing stairs—and I’m okay with that. Here’s the display right now:

I was tempted to stop by the sushi place for a small treat, but when I got to the library, I realized I’d have to walk 3 block farther (and 3 blocks back), so quickly lost interest. Just as well.
